(Via WBHF Radio) Deputies responded to 704 Sugar Valley Road at 1:10 AM Sunday morning in reference to multiple gunshot wounds. While responding, the BCSO was informed that a male had been shot three times, and another male had been shot in the back. Upon arrival, a female and male, later identified as Gary Posey, were standing in the doorway. The female exited the residence and Posey closed the door. Posey then opened the door back up and followed the commands of the deputy, who could see blood flowing from the left side of his stomach.
After both were on the ground and back up arrived on the scene, deputies cleared the residence and found 50-year-old Eric Martin deceased with a firearm. The deputy found another firearm in the front bedroom of the residence. Posey was life-flighted to a hospital.
The female told law enforcement that she was in the bed asleep when Posey entered the bedroom, grabbed his firearm, and stated that he was going to kill Martin. She then heard three gunshots and called 911. Posey was arrested and charged with murder under the family violence act with a firearm and possession of a firearm during the commission of certain felonies.
